Research Assistant

For a project on legislative communication, I am seeking undergraduate students to work during Spring 2018 semester.  Students will follow a coding protocol in order to gather information from emails that elected officials have sent to constituents. Most of the research will take place in the first half of the semester, so students need to be available and willing to jump into the work right away.
No prior research experience is necessary, but familiarity with Microsoft Excel would be helpful.
